Disaggregation:

2008-09—Nationally, by SEIFA Index of Relative Socioeconomic Disadvantage (IRSD) deciles

2008-09—State and territory, by:

  • hospital sector
  • Indigenous status
  • remoteness
  • SEIFA IRSD quintiles

Disaggregations within individual jurisdictions are subject to data quality considerations. Some disaggregations may result in numbers too small for publication. National disaggregation by Indigenous status will be based on data only from jurisdictions for which the quality of Indigenous identification is considered acceptable.
